Az US NAVY elkezdte az MQ-9A Reaper tengeralattjáró-vadász célú felhasználásának tesztelését, ami a várakozások szerint egy dedikált ASW célú MQ-9B SeaGuardian drón hadrendbe állításába futhat ki. A mostani tesztnél a koncepció tökéletesítése a cél, ehhez 10db ledobható szonárbóját visz magával a drón (és fegyverzetet nem). Az MQ-9B SeaGuardian négy szárny alatti pilonnal fog bírni, és ezekre olyan konténert lehet rögzíteni majd, amelybe egyenként 10db 'A' méretű vagy 20db 'G' méretű szonárbója mehet. A koncepció szerint 2 ilyen konténert visz magával (vagy akár négyet, ha csak a célpont felderítése lesz a cél), illetve két könnyű torpedót a felderített célpontok leküzdésére. A SeaGuardian projekt célja a P-8 Poseidon gépek tehermentesítése, amelyek így afféle "repülő irányítóközpontként" vezérelhetnék a tengeralattjáró-elhárító műveleteket.

Új fegyver a MQ-9A Reaper és az MQ-1C Gray Eagle drónoknak.

"...The company is already using internal funds to develop a jet-powered air-launched effect, called Sparrowhawk, that is intended to be air-launched from and air-recoverable (!!!) by the US Air Force’s MQ-9. The firm told FlightGlobal in 2019 that it planned to develop a family of air-launched effects for a variety of roles, such as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), loitering munition, anti-radiation missile or electronic warfare applications..."

“By employing these smaller [unmanned air systems], Reaper and Gray Eagle operators will be able to penetrate, disintegrate and exploit anti-access and area denial air defences, and support operations in any domain,” the company says. “Meanwhile, the greater standoff afforded by these smaller [unmanned air systems] increases the survivability of the larger aircraft by placing them outside the kinetic range of tactical surface-to-air missiles.”

MQ-9 cleared for Automatic Takeoff and Landing; ready for ACE operations

The MQ-9 in service with the U.S. Air Force has carried out an Automatic Takeoff and Landing Capability (ATLC) test and the drone is now cleared for Agile Combat Employment operations. A specialized launch and recovery crew is no longer required when the MQ-9 land and the unmanned air vehicle can now be diverted to a foreign field where it has never been before.

Majd a valódi tesztek lesznek érdekesek...
A bezárt szárnyú Sparrowhawk nem fog "hánykolódni" amíg felhúzza a rögzítési pontig?
Valószínűleg alkkor már nem fog működni az SH hajtóműve, azaz nem függőlegesen, hanem "vontatásból" kell majd felhúzni.

A való életben lehet hogy kicsit bonyolultabb lesz a művelet, különòsen turbulens időben.
A Sparrowhawk nagy pillangó vezérsíkjai azért gondolom segítenek majd stabilizálni a rendszert a pilonra visszaemeléskor is.
Mindenesetre az egész elgondolás mind harcászatilag mind technikailag roppant ötletes.
